Title
Treatment of Spiritual Doubt Among Obsessing Evangelicals
Abstract

Obsessional ideation among evangelicals is often highly spiritual in tone and fearful in mood. After a discussion of the diagnosis and incidence of this symptom complex, a case study, and a clinical survey of Scripture are presented to demonstrate how these symptoms occur in evangelical populations. The article concludes with a survey of theories regarding the origin, development, and treatment of obsessional ideation and a discussion of how treatment of the symptom complex may have integrative implications for the evangelical therapist.
